This meme is about sharing your favorite quotes and the books they come from!
Hosted by Anna at Herding Cats and Burning Soup.

Dangerous Curves Ahead by Sugar Jamison

Her chest was still heaving twenty minutes later. She couldn't believe he wanted her back. Just when she was finally over him, just when her self-esteem returned, he came back to turn her world upside down. She tried to push him out of her mind as she went back to work. But the words asshole, and shithead, and butt face wanted to pour from her mouth like she had some kind of man-hating Tourette's syndrome.

"Honey, what's wrong?" Belinda called to her. She quickly made her way around the counter and grasped Ellis's shoulder. "Ellis what happened? Did we get robbed? Are you hurt?" She looked around the shop, seeing that everything was in its place.

"Jack" was all she said.

"What?" Belinda frowned. "If you tell me Jack was here I'm going to scream."

"He was." Elllis nodded.

"Where's my knife?" Belinda let go of her to rummage through the drawer. "Oh these will work nicely!" She help up a pair of heavy-duty box-cutting scissors. "I bet you could cut his balls off with these. Slimy Bastard."

Ellis has just had her ex boyfriend Jack, who she hasn't seen in 6 months, stop into her shop.  He basically tells her that he wants her back and that she should give up her shop and return to the city with him.  Nevermind that he was caught cheating with another woman and spent the months prior to the breakup degrading Ellis and making her feel worthless.  No, it was all her fault for not seeing that he was going through a rough time because Ellis was good at her job, getting the promotions and praise that he felt he should have gotten.  After reading about Jack, I am right there with Belinda!

I will be posting my review later today here.

Do you have a book or series that sticks in your head months, even years later?
